“Can you imagine waking up one day, announcing you are taking a trip to a distant landmark and driving off, with no directions, no plans? What are the chances that taking any road that appeals to you would actually get you where you wanted to go?” --Gilda Runco

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Gilda Runco’s new book calls on readers to reflect on their lives.

"Gilda tells an emotional and personal story from her heart. She invites you into her soul with spectacular storytelling and a real purpose. This is a must-read for any parent as inspirational advice based on pains and experiences." -- Larry Holeva, Executive Editor, The Times-Tribune, Scranton

Few people would wake up one morning and decide to travel to a distant land without any guidance, preparation, or reflection on the consequences of their decision. Far too many people, however, live their lives that way. Far too many people fail to consider the path they choose in life and prepare for its destination. Most people just wake up every single morning and do whatever is most appealing in the moment. But if failing to plan is equivalent to planning to fail, then such an essential step in unlocking true purpose should not be skipped.

Everybody has been given the precious gift of life, and everyone is here for a reason. By making intentional, positive choices, a person can travel the path that leads to their success.

It was a gift of a stone etched with the letters P-U-R-P-O-S-E that inspired the "Legacy of the PURPOSE Stone." In her book, Gilda Runco tells a remarkable story of how a real-life tragedy led others to a path for discovering their special purpose.

"If you want to know how to turn emotional pain into personal progress, how to go from living in mediocrity into living above average, and from having no direction in your life to having a clear vision and specific goals, then you will benefit from this book. Great truths coupled with Biblical principles! I highly recommend that you take advantage of Gilda's experience and wisdom." --Pastor Gary W. Haskell, Sr, Jackson Baptist Church, Jackson, PA.

“This book does a phenomenal job of illustrating the importance of family, friends, and following your purpose in life. I think every child and adult should read this book to help them answer the age old-question ‘Why am I here and what is my purpose in life?’” -- Chad R. Vinansky, Mid Valley Secondary Center Principal

“All I can say is WOW! What a great self-help book.” -- Cathy Mazur, librarian and author of Stanley Seagull
